    Load and activate Presets through script?

    evangelos.vlasopoulos

      Hello everybody, I am new to scripting and I am trying to load some presets (actions, brushes, styles, shapes) in order to be the active/default sets in Photoshop.
      I have managed to do it with the ScriptListener, but he "follows" the exact path of my computer in order to load and activate the presets. Of course that will cause problems once the script is used outside my computer.

       

      I have managed to direct the script to read the preset folder without following the exact local path (example: app.path+'/Presets/Actions/ActionsSet.atn), but how to activate this set as the default set for the user?

       

      Any help will be appreciated!

          Hey it's me again. I figured out how to load a preset through a better path and I hope that will help someone else.

           

          Lets say that I want to load a set of Actions (ActionsSet.atn):

           

          function myActions() {

          var newActionsPath = app.path+'/Presets/Actions/ActionSet.atn';

          app.load(new File(newActionsPath);

          }

           

          myActions();

           

          That will load the appropriate preset to user's Photoshop no matter the version of Ps or the architecture of the computer (PC, MAC). But I need a couple of things in case somebody knows. How can I make a "load and replace" instead of just "load" (specially for styles and custom shapes) and how to make an "if" statement to check if the presets are already loaded and not load them again.

           

           

          Thank you in advance!

            You can normally only count one selecting Tool preset for the current active tool.  You can not set Photoshop  UI Tools preset to all tools. So you can not count on it being able to load and named tool preset.  You need to select the tool first and that the preset.  If you always load the preset files you will have it loaded many times.  It is better to use a try catch try to select the preset if it fails to select load the presets and then select the preset.  Presets can also be depleted  the try catch should always work..

              Thank you for your help my friend but this scrips unloads the action set, doesn't load action sets or check for an already loaded action set.

              • 5. Re: Load and activate Presets through script?
                evangelos.vlasopoulos Level 1

                Thank you JJMack for your help! When I apply the script from the ScriptListener I am able to import right away almost all the assets that I need. The "Styles & Custom Shapes" are loaded into photoshop only once (not repeatedly) every time I run the script. It's like I selected the "Replace Shapes... or Replace Styles...".

                 

                Unfortunately the same thing doesn't apply with brushes, I get new copies of the same set once I re-run the script.

                 

                About the Action Set, it doesn't get loaded into Photoshop through the script from the ScriptListener. I load the Action Set with the help of the script I posted ealier, but I get (as you wrote me), repeatedly copies of the set, every time I run the script.

                 

                So far, I figured out how to import and activate as default sets the Custom Shapes & Styles. But I haven't figured out yet how to import and not repeat this action for Brushes and Actions. I need a "Replace.." kind command for those two in order to work properly.

                 

                Thank you for your help!!

                    Very helpful script, thank you very much! I will use it sure for something else. I should explain better that the assets I want to bring as default (Brushes, Actions, Custom Shapes & Styles) are already in Photoshop (they are installed in the presets folder). So I can see those inside the program. I need to select, activate, replace the default sets (if it's possible) and not duplicate each time I run the script.

                     

                    Thank you!

                      Bonjour

                       

                      Maybe you can create, save appropriate workspaces and then call them ?

                       

                      And see HERE

                        Bonjour Dominique!

                         

                        Thank you for you comment. Indeed the Workspace installation is something that also bugs me, I was going to create a batch file for that, but I will try and use your idea instead.

                         

                        The reason I would like to bring those assets (brushes, actions, styles & C.Shapes) as defaults with a script is that even-though someone has a Workspace with specific panels and sets selected in Photoshop, once the program crashes or the computer shuts down unexpectedly, the sets are gone and I have to re-bring them as defaults (happens a lot with Actions). That's why I need a script that brings everything back. It will make user's life easier.

                         

                        Merci!

                          I use 3 workspace backups with keyboard shortcuts and tools!
                          And I'm using this one to reset everything to zero :

                          [code]// =======================================================
                          var idslct = charIDToTypeID( "slct" );
                              var desc1 = new ActionDescriptor();
                              var idnull = charIDToTypeID( "null" );
                                  var ref1 = new ActionReference();
                                  var idworkspace = stringIDToTypeID( "workspace" );
                                  ref1.putName( idworkspace, "HUN" );
                              desc1.putReference( idnull, ref1 );
                          executeAction( idslct, desc1, DialogModes.NO );

                          [/code]

                            I understand that this script resets a specific W/S to the original (saved) version (it produces an error in the 8th line I am afraid).

                            Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 09.44.35.jpg

                             

                            But the script resets the W/S only, doesn't reset the Actions, Brushes, C.Shapes and Styles to the ones I have saved as defaults in my W/S.

                             

                            I still need to find a way to say to Photoshop something like: "Select this set of Styles (name of Styles set), set it as default and replace the previous" and "Select this set of Actions (name of Actions set), bring it to the Actions Panel and check if there is already a copy of that set".

                             

                            As I wrote earlier, the assets are already in the "Presets" folder of Photoshop, so they are loaded once the program starts, I need to bring them in front and make them active.

                             

                            Thank you once again for your effort to help me!

                              Hum.........

                               

                               

                              I have functions that launch styles and brushes.

                              But I'm not sure I understand everything you want - poor French brains!

                                Probably it's my way of thinking that makes you confused. Let me re-explain.

                                 

                                I have a Panel, this Panel needs some assets in order to work properly (Brushes, Custom Shapes, Styles & Actions).

                                 

                                These assets are already installed inside the "Presets" folder of Adobe Photoshop.

                                 

                                When I open Photoshop, I click on the Panel to activate it and then I need to click a button on the Panel, which is connected with a script, to bring those assets as defaults in the Actions, Styles, Brushes & Custom Shapes Panels.

                                 

                                So I think I need a script that says: "Photoshop, find this set of actions (example "Panel Actions") which is already in your list and bring it inside the Actions Panel and please check if there is already there" (in case of a crash the user should re-press the button to bring all the assets).

                                 

                                The same should happen with Custom Shapes & Styles, but these must replace the previous sets or at least bring a dialogue to let the user replace or append the set.

                                 

                                I really appreciate your efforts!
